  • Q:

    What comes first, length or width?

    A:

    There is no strict rule for listing dimensions of length, width or height, but there are conventions typically followed. Generally, the bigger measurement is listed first, and so many times this ends up being the length or height. For instance, if someone is measuring a rectangle, the longer sides tend to be regarded as the length, which are then listed first before the width measurement.
